Kidding. But seriously I look back at something I pinned and there’s like 20+ repins.
My sorority does three days of gift-giving, then on the fourth we have reveal and an optional “explosion” of gifts.
Some basic supplies:
-Multi-pack canvases: Walmart sells smaller ones for about $10; Michaels has various sizes for about $20 but use 40% off coupon (THEY WILL ACCEPT COMPETITORS COUPONS)
-Acrylic Paint: anywhere from about $0.50-$1.20 depending on the brand and if you want sparkles/shiny paints
-Bedazzles/Pearls: $17 at hobby lobby, but use 40% off coupon!
-Hot glue gun/sticks; modge podge
-PAINT PENS! I highly suggest using them for writing out phrases on canvases
